Love And Basketball Quotes

When I say Love And Basketball quotes that means I’m talking about the quotes from the movie “Love and Basketball”

There are just so many quotes I can get out of this movie but I’m afraid this page would turn out to be too long. The script from the movie is pretty awesome and that’s what made this movie special. In case you haven’t read it, here’s my review here…

Quincy’s studying…

Quincy: I can’t do this shit…

Father: Boy, what did I tell you about using that word?

Quincy: “Can’t” should never be in a man’s vocabulary.

Father: And why not?

Quincy: Cause when you say “can’t” you ain’t a man.

Father: That’s right.

Mother: Zeke!

Father: What? Oh, yeah. Don’t say “shit”.

As kids, Monica and Quincy (the starring roles) are talking…

Quincy: Wanna be my girl?

Monica: What do I have to do?

Quincy: I guess we can play ball and ride to school together. When you get mad I gotta give you flowers.

In a scene where he finds out that his has been cheating on his mom…

Quincy: Well, since we’re being so honest… I’d figured that I tell you that I decided to drop out of school and turn pro.

Father: Oh, boy. Damn it. Look man, I know you’re mad at me. Ok? But I cannot let you do this.

Quincy: I always thought that “can’t” wasn’t in a man’s vocabulary.

Monica couldn’t continue playing basketball because Quincy was missing from her life…

Monica: You asked me what was missing?

Quincy: You woke me up to tell me that?

Monica: It’s not fun for me anymore because you’re missing. What I’m trying to say is… I’ve loved you since I was eleven. It sure won’t go away.

Quincy: We haven’t talked since college. You wait two weeks before my wedding to tell me something like that?


Monica: I’ll play you

Quincy: What?

Monica: One game, one on one.

Quincy: For what?

Monica: Your heart!
